We are innovative
We’re creating a range of innovative products and transforming our processes to address current global issues. Climate change, the scarcity of fossil fuels, urbanization and increasing mobility are all affecting the world we live in. From helping to improve insulation for buildings and making vehicles lighter and more fuel-efficient, to introducing the use of carbon dioxide (a greenhouse gas) for producing plastics, we’re developing the solutions the evolving world needs.
Innovation - Overview
Let’s improve stewardship
We want to minimize the risks that the entire lifecycle of our products poses to health, safety and the environment, from research and development (R&D) to final disposal. And we’ve set ourselves some ambitious targets to achieve by 2025. For example, as well as reducing greenhouse gas emissions and passing on our sustainability standards to our suppliers, we also aim to align our R&D to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. In addition, we aim to improve the lives of ten million people in underserved markets by developing affordable products, and to get as much value from carbon – the element all our products are based on – as we can.
